[Video Series]: Warning Against ISIS & Extremist (Khārijī) Ideologies in Our Era

In the recent years, there has been an alarming increase of radicalization of many youth across the United States & Canada, and more specifically in the Twin Cities region (Minneapolis, St.Paul MN), along with increased confusion of the correct Islamic position regarding terrorist groups such as;

• Al-Shabāb
• Al-Qā’idah
• Jabahat Nusrā etc.

Because of the dangers of remaining silent of such groups and ideologies, Masjid Al-Wahyain MN has taken an initiative to launch a series of video-fatāwa [verdicts of the Major Scholars of our time] aimed at destroying the doubts of these deviant organizations  & connecting the people to the speech of Ahlul-ʿIlm [Scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah] in clarifying their misguidance. 

The following videos are translations of the statements & verdicts of the Major ʿUlamā [scholars], which are available on the Masjid’s YouTube page, as well as the Masjid’s main website [www.MasjidAlWahyain.com]. 

The verdicts of the ʿUlamā are from the likes of;

– Shaykh ʿAbdul Muḥsin al-ʿAbbād al-Badr
– Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Luḥaydān
– Shaykh Ṣāliḥ bin Fawzān al-Fawzān
– Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī
– Shaykh ʿUbayd ibn ʿAbdillāh al-Jābirī 

{May Allāh preserve them all}
